* ''Series/KanpaiSenshiAfterV'' was broadcast in Japan during 2014 at the same time the third season of ''Series/HikoninSentaiAkibaranger'' would have aired. Though ''After V'' is not produced by {{Toei}}, it does parody ''Series/SuperSentai'' in a similar vein to ''Akibaranger'', but with more focus given on the activites of our heroes at night rather than their battles against evil.

* ''Series/ChoujinkiMetalder'' was produced by {{Toei}} to be a [[TheEighties 1980s]] version of ''[[Series/{{Kikaider}} Jinzou Ningen Kikaider]]''. Both involved robotic superheroes with a two-tone color scheme on their body (blue on the left side and red on the right), both end their names with "der" ("Kikaider" literally means "Machineder"), their human forms are modeled after the likeness of their creator's dead son (Jiro's likeness came from Taro's, while Ryusei Tsurugi's was from Tatsuo Koga), and they're both assisted by a rival cyborg in black who formerly worked for the enemy (Hakaider and Topgunder).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheOA'' is a spiritual successor to the film ''Film/SoundOfMyVoice'', by the same creators. They both star co-writer Creator/BritMarling as a mysterious woman who is associated with a disability and collects followers based on her claims of extraordinary knowledge. She gives sermons that are mostly recollections from her past experiences and also teaches her followers a specific sequence of bodily movements. Ultimately, [[spoiler:her claims are neither verified nor debunked by the end]].

* ''Series/TopGear'' was a show on the BBC about three very British VitriolicBestBuds messing around with some cars. ''Series/TheGrandTour'' is a show about the same three very British VitriolicBestBuds messing around with some cars... but now they're on Amazon.

* ''Series/TheMiddle'' is one to ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle''. The creators don't even try to hide this by...at least giving the show a different name.

* ''Fairly Secret Army'' is a "spiritual spin-off" to ''Series/TheFallAndRiseOfReginaldPerrin''. It was created by David Nobbs, and the lead character, Major Harry Truscott, played by Geoffrey Palmer, was essentially Palmer's ''Perrin'' character, Major Jimmy Anderson, without the "bit of a cock-up" catchphrase. However, ''Fairly Secret Army'' was a ChannelFour show, while the rights to ''Perrin'' characters remained with Creator/TheBBC.

Added DiffLines:

* Series/NightCourt could be considered one for Series/BarneyMiller as it focuses on the wacky misadventures of the staff of a New York city courthouse and also mixes comedy with some dramatic moments(though it also goes outside the courtroom more than the latter show did). The series' creator, the late Reinhold Weege, was a writer for BM, and several actors like Kenneth Tigar, Florence Halop & Florence Stanley appeared on both shows.
